What Is The Great Community Give?
The Great Community Give is a powerful online giving event designed to inspire and grow philanthropy in our community. It is a single-day fundraising celebration from sunrise to sunset on Wednesday April 18th. This event is centered on community nonprofits in Harrisonburg and Rockingham County. Using a single online donation platform, www.greatcommunitygive.org, our community can be connected with local nonprofits. This is an initiative of The Community Foundation of Harrisonburg & Rockingham County.
